After winning the award for Choice TV Show in the drama category, Empire took the stage at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards. Jussie Smollett and Bryshere "Yazz" Gray put their angelic pipes on display, performing "You're So Beautiful."  The duo's co-star Gabourey Sidibe made a surprise appearance midway through, joining the lively performance in a turquoise mini dress.
